THE LABOUR MARKET. Latest reports exhibit no fresh feature of interest in the labour market. The amount of business done in all the staple industries is fairly good, and, as the trade returns for April prove, there are signs of im- provement in the iron trade, and both foreign and home demands for immediate supply are increasing. There is an improvement in the lock trade; in fact all the hardware industries are busy, and the opera- tives in all the branches are well employed. In the woollen market the tone is, on the whole, good, and the carpet trade is somewhat better, there being ex- tensive orders for export. The cotton industry is dull, and there prevails a gloom in all its branches, but in the opinion of the manufacturers it will only be of a temporary character. No improvement can be reported in the coal trade in all the districts short time is being brought into operation. All the metropolitan industries are fairly busy, and in several of them the operatives are agitating for an advance of wages. In the West of England and South Wales the trade of the past week has shown more activity.
